Question help bout firewall!

hi i think i misconfigure my firewall , its been a week since my last install of manrake 10, im a newbie and formerly windows user . i hev a big problem, coz i consider it big for me.

i configure my firewall using drakfirewall after i selected some options it prompt me to install shorewall, so i installed it! i used draksec also to and configure some optons. i found no problem after all ive done.

suddenly i read in other thread about webmin and fwbuilder as a frontend for iptables, they said it is gud, then i try it install!

after all of these, i just found that ive already secure my system, hmmm ......
but when i tried to connect to my computer remotely using ssh or sftp, ftp, my computer refuses me to logon .

so i decided to stop the wedmin, shorewall, and iptables from starting at boot time, but still i cant logon. so i decided to uninstall the shorewall, webmin, except for iptables, and still i cant logon.

waaaaaa ( i dont know wat 2 do......

help me dudes.... im in trouble
or i will reinstall my mandrake.. )
